Here's what clients are saying about Cate Holcombe Interiors:

"It was a pleasure working with Cate. We wanted to find ways to utilize the space in our small home more efficiently and without breaking the bank. She had lots of creative ideas that were practical and fit our family. We're looking forward to working with her again soon!" - Abbey B.

"Cate is warm, friendly and approachable. She "got" my slightly offbeat aesthetic and worked with me quickly and efficiently to imagine a fresh approach to my new old home." - Kirsten R.

"We recently had Cate create a custom design for my husband's home office and provide a general consultation for the rest of the house that we are extremely pleased with! For the office, she came up with a detailed plan with specific layout, furniture and decoration options that truly captured the style and mood that he was looking for. In the general consultation, she made efficient use of the time allotted and provided great suggestions for colors, possible furniture selections, and room layouts. She has been incredibly encouraging, patient, and responsive throughout the entire process. We would definitely recommend Cate for any future design work!" -Arleen C.

"Cate has been a huge help for us - really rooting out our personal style and being a tremendous source of inspiration for how to work with key pieces that we already own, plus give brilliant suggestions for specific new items to acquire and add to the mix. So attentive and personal. She saw opportunities/solutions/hidden beauty in our home that I was missing!"  -Cary E.

"I had a great time with you, Cate! Thank you so much for your help with my house- you inspired me! I've already changed around a lot (oh my stars, why did I never think of moving the bed before?!? Brilliant!)…You were a tremendous help!"  -Marie W.

"Cate has an amazing eye for layering color, pattern, and interest into a room, and she's awesome when it comes to being budget conscious and making anything work - even a rental!"  -Sherry Petersik,  NYT Bestselling Author

"I worked with Cate to develop our son's first big boy bedroom. Using a family painting as the inspiration, she created a complete look that is cohesive, functional and can evolve as our son grows. I love that she carefully incorporated all the elements we wanted while presenting different furnishing and design options depending on our final project budget. I know our son will love the fun, comfortable, and personalized space to call his own."  -Robin M

"Cate’s decorating inspirations are unique and she found cost-efficient ways to spruce up our home.  She really listened to what I was trying to accomplish and my likes and dislikes, then gave me recommendations based on what she thought would fit our home.  Everyone is different and has unique ideas of what they like, but sometimes we need that extra person outside of the box to look in and put it all together.  Cate is definitely my go-to girl for all of my decorating needs."  -Caroline D.

"Cate did an amazing job designing our combined family room/dining room space! Not only did she incorporate all of the elements I indicated were important to my family, she offered new ideas and perspectives I loved that had never occurred to my HGTV-watching self (not to mention coming in significantly under budget). I'm looking forward to calling Cate again when we are ready for another room!"  -Amy C.

"I was feeling stressed and overwhelmed with making decorating decisions at my house. Having Cate come in provided me with a whole new, fresh perspective! We made changes right away by moving around furniture and tweaking accessories. Cate's direction and encouragement gave me decorating confidence! I can't wait to implement her ideas." -Lauren P.
